D.C.'s first cidery, ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar, isn't slated to open in Truxton Circle until the end of the year. But if you want a sneak peek before then, the Basque-inspired bar and restaurant will host a dinner at the Dolcezzafactory on July 27.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. with cocktail hour featuring an array of pintxos (Spanish small bites) from chef Brad Walker plus a welcome drink and pour of cider. That will be followed by a four-course family-style meal accompanied by ciders from the Basque country and elsewhere. Pintxos will include grilled cal├žots (a type of scallion) with romesco and mushrooms with herb salt and garlic puree. Family-style dishes will range from a mixed seafood salad to a wood-grilled ciderhouse bone-in ribeye. The meat will be similar to that traditionally served by ciderhouses in the Basque country during cider season (January through April).
